In the scandal with the detention in Moscow of an American spy diplomat what is most important? A diplomat, he is a spy — there is a scandal — no.
As Yury Ushakov, a presidential aide for foreign policy, stated, "a case of crude, awkward recruitment took place against the backdrop of a clearly stated mood of both President Obama and President Putin about the importance of enhancing cooperation and contacts between the special services of the two countries." And he complained that these impulses from the top to the executive level, for example, to some employees of the American embassy, somehow were not communicated. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov considered this topic superfluous at the talks with his American counterpart John Kerry: "Everything is already public knowledge. And, in my opinion, everyone understands everything."
The point is that really everything is clear. Including "some employees of the American Embassy." That is, there is understanding, and the motivation is different. Given our attitude to the professionalism of such a respected organization as the CIA, this is the only explanation of almost public recruitment, more like a clowning, when not the last employee of this organization, specially dressed as a spy, rushes to recruit our staff member who did not give him any worthy reasons .
From the film "TASS is authorized to declare":
- Well, go - adviser on culture! Hold the bundle!
- That's not mine. I am an American diplomat. You have no right.
Paraphrasing Professor Preobrazhensky, do not look before eating Soviet films. The advice is, in principle, superfluous. For example, the same Ambassador McFaul is not a boy. But the fact of the matter is that this is not a boy of another era and another team. We have repeatedly spoken about how the current Obama team is trying to expand Russian-American relations, for example, on such painful topics as Syria. And what are the over-interest and what kind of opposition does it run into at the same time? The only explanation for stupid recruitment is an attempt to spoil the atmosphere of these finely tuned relationships. But Elena Malysheva noted in the program “To live healthy”: “Farting is a conscious process. He can fart into the toilet, and not next to you in bed!”
From the film "TASS is authorized to state:
"My government has appropriately assessed your government’s decision not to publicize this matter."
And you say - scandal !?
